. >> yeah, unfortunately, it's still very common. we at the indiana attorney general's office have seen all of these scams within -- among the consumers that we are representing. one of the -- one of the scams that's very common in our area, partly because every year we face a lot of storms, which you've all been reading about in southern indiana and tennessee and illinois -- we always get tornadoes. we always get very severe storms with hail, et cetera. there are a group of scammers that will go from door to door and from state to state, following the storms. we typically call them storm chasers. sometimes we have a different group of scammers that we call travelers that just come seasonally depending on the situation. in case of the storm chasers, what will happen is they will follow a disaster and they will go door to door and say things like, i just repaired your neighbor's roof and i have some materials left over. i'll be happy to give you a discount on your repair for your house 'cause i've got, you know, one more day that i'm going to be here. if you decide right now. so there's the
